Let's talk about those that are looking for meaningful employment in the online world. There are many reasons for one to do so. You meet the criteria to get such employment in the commuting community but you want to spend more time with your family or save money on the daily drive. There are many employment opportunities that are literally just a click away. Whether you have the necessary skills for work in a virtual customer call center, or as a freelance writer, medical transcriber or data entry field, companies are out there looking for you!

The question is, how do you find them? It's no longer as easy as picking up your local newspaper and looking through the classifieds. It's not even as simple as checking out Monster or Yahoo! Jobs. Two of the main players in virtual job classifieds, why can't you find real virtual jobs on them? It's one of those sad scenarios that it's no longer safe for those legitimate jobs to even be posted in these fashions. It makes it even much more difficult to find these safe working at home jobs.

It all comes back to the working at home scams. Yes, there's always a scam out there. If there's a legitimate program then there's a legitimate scam. If there's a legitimate job opportunity, again, there's a legitimate scam. The problem with most of these job boards or classified ads is that ANYONE can pay to have their "job ad" posted to them whether it is for real employment or a complete scam. Many of these listings go through absolutely no verification process and get immediately posted once their payment clears.

That makes your potential employment search not only absolutely useless but very dangerous. It's how these places make their money though. Either the employer pays to have their ads placed or they rely heavily on again dangerous advertising. Ever been on Monster and seen an advertisement that looks like a job listing that sends you to another scamming get rich quick scheme? That's not really safe or responsible on a job listing board, is it? Most of these scams are directed to those that are interested in working from home and that's why it is so important for everyone to be vigilante.

There are important factors to look for when choosing an employment board for online work. First and foremost make sure that the boards states its verification process for all ads that are listed on its board. Then make sure that the board states that no one can purchase advertising space on its board. There are other ways for the board to make money than to rely on getting as many people as it possibly can to place an ad. That's a dangerous tactic. The board should be more focused on getting as many prospective employees to visit the page as possible. If that happens, the employers will come.

The same rules apply in all aspects of online business. Whether starting your own business or looking for an occupation, stay vigilante and do your research. Don't fall for the work at home job scams. Be safe out there and good luck on your job search if you're looking.
